Adam Sandler movies tend to be hit or miss for me – with the misses far outweighing the hits in recent years. But he’s definitely found a winning formula with Drew Barrymore. Blended isn’t as good as their previous joint offerings (50 First Dates, The Wedding Singer) but it’s still an amusing flick that the whole family can watch together without being terribly mortified, embarrassed or disgusted.

Mr. Popper’s Penguins

Mr. Popper’s Penguins is a fine family film for Father’s Day. The live action comedy stars Jim Carrey as a divorced dad who’s so wrapped up in his work that he’s lost sight of what’s really important in life – until he inherits six penguins from Antarctica.
